Stephen LaceyStephen Lacey, 1943-2000

Professor of English Stephen Lacey '65 died on March 27, 2000 of honeycomb pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive lung disease. His legacy includes three courses that Leslie LaPlante '91 calls the "Lacey Triumvirate: the Shakespeare play, the trip to England, and Proust."

That Professor Lacey changed lives is made lavishly clear by the Tributes and Rembrances page, comprised of submissions from more than 100 people, mostly former students. Stephen loved books, not the Web, but we think "he would be outwardly mortified and inwardly charmed," in the words of Jeanette Rattner '83
